What are the key differences between the biomedical model of health and the biopsychosocial model of health?
The biomedical model of health is the older model of the two that typically is only concerned with the biological/physical aspect of health (for example: heart rate, blood pressure, weight, etc). This model tends to support the view of mind-body dualism (i.e. that the mind and the body are separate from each other). The biopsychosocial model of health believes that biological, psychological, and social factors all influence health. As a result, this model considers things such as attitudes, beliefs, emotions, and behavior in the development, course, and cure of physical illness. This model supports the view that the mind and body cannot be separated.
What is the cerebellum?
The cerebellum is a brain structure located in the back of the brain. It contains about half of our neurons and has a cortex of its own (cerebellar cortex) which is why it's often referred to as the "little brain." The cerebellum exists in both hemispheres of the brain. Its main function is to regulate motor movements.

What are the different types of memory and how do they differ?
The three different types of memory are sensory memory, working memory (also known as short-term memory) and long-term memory. The main differentiating factor among them is the length of time that they last. Sensory memory lasts for 1 second or less, working memory lasts for 1 minute or less, while long-term memory theoretically lasts forever.
